* Money: How easily were you able to live on a student's budget?

(1 = not very easy/$200+ on food & personal expenses/week, 2.5 = $100/week, 5 = very easily/minimal cost)

Not including program expenses, about how much money did you spend on food and other expenses each week? i shopped a lot... so i spent around 75 to 100 a week.
Do you have any general money-saving tips for future study abroad participants? don't shop! it makes you burn through money. travel and eat cheaply.


How would you rate your language skills at the beginning of the program? None
Language acquisition improvement?

everyone knew english so i wasn't really tested on swedish in the real world
